Mike Huckabee's Revisionist History Lesson

[Mike] Huckabee has launched a new educational company called Learn Our History that aims to get kids excited about studying the nation's past.
...The first volume in the series highlights the Reagan era, where the characters experience the 1980 presidential election and President Ronald Reagan's "Tear Down This Wall" speech in Berlin.
The cartoon features some amusing and sometimes alarming retrospective of how things went down. In a clip, the teenagers encounter on the streets of Washington a dark-skinned mugger clad in a "Disco" muscle shirt and armed with a knife, demanding money. Other scenes of violence unfold before Reagan appears like a white knight with a message of hope and optimism.

...You know, because that's exactly how it all went down.

I can't wait for these future installments:

~ Native American Genocide
~ American Slavery
~ Japanese Internment During World War II

...and who can forget:
~ The Iran-Contra Affair
